Picked this up in Grove City with 4 others a little more than a year ago. I was going to leave it a crusty rat ped but every time I touched it I thought I'd get tetanus.

Re: Roadmaster Rescue (the good one)

Good job! What did you do to the headlight on that Roadmaster?

Re: Roadmaster Rescue (the good one)

Wow, looks amazing! I would have kept that front fender though, but great work! You are a glutton for punishment, mopeds AND Saab's... ;) Do tell about the light? Does it through a beam, is the lens fluted like stock, or is it just more so people can see you? Cob led's?

Re: Roadmaster Rescue (the good one)

Roadmaster had no headlight element. I shared info on this link. The light is bright and focused enough. I'm still thinking about a front fender. The original is a bit beat up and would be difficult to fit with the stabilizer.

Incredible job! If he were a real glutton, he'd get a friction drive model, too.

Makin me miss my sonett. Neat bike

Re: Roadmaster Rescue (the good one)

Thanks folks. While I admit putting this back together made no sense, I like these V1 peds. I'm still into this right < $400, of course the labor is free. It was kind of like putting a puzzle together using pieces from different puzzles. Wheels came from the Trac roller, fork was from another project that didn't work, engine rebuild, lighting stuff, controls from other peds, and of course sandblasting with lots of paint. Still has rust pit depressions and nothing is perfect but it'll hit 35+ and if I was better at porting maybe more. Very stable with this fork.

That's the best part : making something out of 'nothing' . ;)
